Why are you questioning what is wrong when you say that you are aware that the catalytic converter needs to be replaced? Fix the known problems then ask questions.

If the damaged converter media is restricting the exhaust will restrict the exhaust flow. This means that the engine cannot freely rev up on demand and you will go slow. Releasing the gas pedal will sometimes allow the loose media to move away from the converter outlet which will result in free flowing exhaust which means the engine can rev up and go faster.

Any chain store muffler shop can weld in a universal converter for a couple of hundred bucks at the most.
